The Children's Place Preschool is a place where learning and development is valued. Accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the preschool is also licensed by the State of Florida #DC-3123-S and DCF#C01SR0010.
Children's Place is an early childhood program for children ages 12 months to pre-kindergarten dedicated to the nurturing, growth and happiness of children. Our preschool reflects the church's mission to serve families, especially during early childhood when the basic patterns for coping with life are formed. We emphasize the teaching of Christian values through well-grounded principles of current child development principles.
About Our Accreditation
NAEYC administers the largest and most widely recognized national, voluntary, professionally sponsored accreditation system for all types of early childhood school and child care centers. NAEYC is the nation's largest organization of early childhood educators. Early Childhood programs accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs - NAEY's accreditation department - have voluntarily undergone a comprehensive process of internal self-study, invited external professional review to verify compliance with the Criteria for High-Quality Early Childhood Programs, and been found to be in substantial compliance with the criteria.
A copy of the Criteria can be obtained from NAEYC's Academy. To obtain more information, please contact NAEYC at www.naeyc.org.
